RUTLAND PLASTICS INVESTS TO SAVE
Injection moulder Rutland Plastics has always had a policy of continuous investment but with the big increases in energy costs in recent years emphasis has shifted towards energy saving measures.
“As a team we have discussed several options for reducing our energy consumption,” says Rutland Plastics’ MD Steve Ayre. “This includes everything from low energy lighting up to solar panels. We then ranked them on energy saving potential and payback time.”
These rules were applied when redeveloping the office and factory site with new energy efficient roofing and ventilation for the production area and a similar approach to the new offices and their air conditioning. Lighting in all low traffic areas, such as corridors and the warehouse, has been fitted with motion sensors.
